    This museum was an amazing discovery! Offers many interactive activities, 3D cinema, as well as playground. We have been in the Museum for over 3 hours and we had so much fun: our 5 years no longer wanted to leave! The only con was the Planetarium: boils down to one lady who, speaking only in Spanish and at the speed of light, explains planets, stars and space ... It would also be interesting if you could follow it, but even I, who speak Spanish, I struggled.

    We wanted to do a visit express and just coming out late at the Museum. EVERYTHING you can touch. It is from a cabin of an aircraft to geometric problems that you must try to solve. 100% recommended and more if you go with small children.

  • It small but you always learn something. Recommended from 3 to 99. Whole family. Very varied themes.
  • A very interactive museum with many experiments to try. Lots of fun. Unfortunately some were out of order and not all had an English description.
  • Nice museum with Wi-Fi and close to las palmas city centre( Parque de Santa Catalina).Beach is also nearby.
  • Great interactive experience. Skip the planetarium, but make sure to ride the robocoaster
  • Would be nice if there were more options in English, but enjoyed it nonetheless.
